-After several days of warm weather we awoke yesterday to relatively cold and windy surroundings. Of course, it seems that what passes for cold these days is nothing like winters past when cold was cold (and cars needed to be plugged in).
-One major consequence of our unseasonably warm weather is that we haven't had much snow to shovel. While I can't really complain about the lack of shovelling, I was expecting a somewhat typical amount of shovelling this year. I was further expecting that this shovelling would finally be enough to wear out one of our two shovels. Because of these nested expectations some number of months ago I began dreaming about the replacement shovel I could justify buying once the cheap shovel I'm currently using finally wore out. Somehow, and maybe for the better, the cheap two-pack of shovels that we bought about three years ago just so that we would have shovels when we moved into our house have been much more resilient than expected.
-Several months ago, for reasons that are no longer entirely clear to me, I decided to try to up my cabbage consumption. Thinking back on this decision I think that it must have had something to do with price as it wasn't until after I'd made the decision that I learned that there were some nutritional benefits to be derived from the dietary addition.
While I can't say that I'm yet a daily consumer of cabbage, I have gotten pretty good at adding to my soup rotation, using it as the base component for any salads, and adding it to sandwiches.
I'm quite impressed with myself that I've managed to keep this going for a few months with relative ease. Maybe with a few months more of effort the practice will become so ingrained that it will no longer require effort.
-I really think I need a nap.
